How far will you go to protect yourself, your colleagues, your patients? Is confession really good for the soul? This 4 hour course will explore the difficult issues that arise when you become aware of indiscretions of others, and your professional responsibilities and integrity come into conflict with your loyalties. Federal laws and regulations outlining our duty to report will be presented, followed by group discussions of the related ethical concepts of honesty, loyalty, autonomy, and informed consent, and how they may create conflicts for us in our clinical practice as well as our daily lives. This presentation meets the 4 hour licensure requirement for Ethics and Jurisprudence. Discounted fee for Marquette Alumni, community participants welcome!

Join us for an exploration of the culture and ways to approach both real and perceived barriers of early mobility. Topics will include evidence based practice with a focus on team collaboration for critically ill patients across the acute care spectrum. Discussions incorporate equipment management, lab values, vital signs, complicating conditions using case scenarios and open discussion
This 3-day course is designed for rehabilitation professionals seeking additional skills and training in providing neuromuscular re-education and therapeutic exercise for clients with pelvic floor dysfunction and related diagnoses. Comprehensive regional anatomy and function will be addressed, including diaphragm, thoraco-lumbar hip mobility, abdominal wall, pelvic floor and multifidi. Participants will apply concepts during lab-based therapeutic neuromuscular re-education and client self-treatment methods. Clinical knowledge of orthopedic manual therapy is recommended but not required.
This course is an excellent adjunct for orthopedic as well as pelvic floor clinicians seeking additional treatment tools for clients with lumbar, hip and sacroiliac pain syndromes. There is no internal pelvic floor assessment or observation/assessment of the perineum during this course.
This course is designed for licensed physical therapists with a BS or MPT degree. DPT entry-level lecture course focusing on a broad range of medical diseases and their various clinical presentations. The focus is on the use of clinical decision making skills when analyzing a patient's medical history intake and the review of systems. The course addresses screening, to include referral for conditions or diseases that are not within a physical therapist's scope of practice.More information on the course.
Focus on the Upper Extremity with Dr. Donald Neumann, PT, PhD, FAPTA and special guest Dr. David Williams, PT, PhD, ATC, CSCS.
This course is open to PT's. Participants join DPT entry-level lecture course by attending one or two guest lectures on Plain Film Radiography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Computed Tomography (CT) Imaging Content for DPT Professional Practice".
An intensive four-day study of the anatomical and pyscho-physiological principles essential for the development of effective treatment programs. This course meets didactic training and practicum requirements for Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) certification in pelvic floor muscle dysfunction biofeedback. A benefit for the PT Faculty Scholarship Fund to assist graduate students in the doctor of physical therapy program. Detail information to follow.
This course consists of an intensive four-day anatomical dissection and kinesiological review. Even-year summers focus on the lower extremity and odd-year summers focus on the upper extremity. The primary purpose of this course is to provide clinicians with a solid anatomical and kinesiologic basis for understanding normal and abnormal function of the musculoskeletal system. This information is essential for the development of effective treatment programs.
This course consists of an exciting three-day anatomical dissection of the brain and spinal cord, as well as a compelling review of recent advances in functional neuroscience. Participants will work in groups and be allotted three afternoons to perform regional dissections on embalmed human cadaveric material. The faculty consists of neuroscientists and clinicians qualified and experienced as neuroanatomical instructors. Faculty members guide 12 hours of dissection in the afternoons. These sessions are complemented by three morning lecture sessions enriched by slide, video, computer animation and microscopic presentations. Detail information to follow.
Deciding for others: Paternalism, persuasion, and public heath

This course provides training in neuroscience applied to higher mental functions and their disorders. Participants gain an in-depth understanding of structural properties, sensorimotor systems and neurolinguistic organization of the human brain. This learning is supplemented by the guided brain dissections and neurological problem solving. Participants will also learn about the modern neuroradiological techniques, advances in neurological management of stroke and related syndromes, bioethical issues, neuropsychological concepts and neurolinguistic implications of various neurosurgical techniques. The faculty is derived from the disciplines of neurolinguistics, neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery, law and neuroradiology.
This is an advanced two-day course designed for nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other health care providers who are seeking a better understanding of the various bowel disorders that affect children, women and men; and the specific rehabilitation strategies that are useful in treating these disorders.
This clinically relevant full day seminar will expand the practitioner’s knowledge of the basic physics and physiology concepts that govern the use electrical stimulation. Current literature both supporting and refuting the effects of electrical stimulation form the basis for this evidence based course. Application protocols for the application of electrical stimulation as they relate to specific pathologies will be discussed. Participants will return to practice with increased confidence in choosing the most appropriate electrical stimulation modality for a given pathology, and be able to defend their choice to patients, physicians, and secondary payers.
This program is recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as a Clinical Instructor (CI) Education and Credentialing Program and is being sponsored by Marquette University on behalf of the WI Clinical Education Consortium. The program was developed through a grant funded by APTA under the direction of principal investigator Michael J. Emery, Ed.D., PT and with co-investigators Nancy Peatman, PT, M.Ed. and Lynn Foord, MS, M.Ed., PT and with materials used by the New England Consortium of Academic Coordinators of Clinical Education, Inc. It takes 15 hours to complete the entire program for CI Education and Credentialing.
The Advanced Clinical Instructor Credentialing and Education Program brings two constructs together in one professional development program that advances both clinical teaching and best practice when providing student clinical education. Using a case-based and interactive approach to education, this program provides participants with the essential knowledge and skill to more effectively teach and mentor students in the context of a doctoring profession. Through the program's unique philosophy and design, best outcomes will be achieved for student learning by concurrently advancing concepts of clinical teaching and clinical practice.
